solve for x:
3x  2y = 6
i need help in solving this:
the possible answers has to be one of these:
A)2y +6 divided by 3
b)3x 6 divided by 2
C) 2 + 2y
D) 2/3y + 6
but how i keep trying and i don't get non of these.
Add 2y to both sides of the equation. That will give you
3x = 2y + 6
Then divide both sides of the new equation by 3 and you will see what x is.
It will be one of the choices.

the answer is x=2+(2/3)y
3x  2y = 6
+2y +2y
3x = 6 + 2y
  
3 3 3
x = 2 + (2/3)y
